Abstract:Evaluation of soil erosion in Reghin Hills using the USLE method. Soil erosion is one of the main causes of degradation of large areas of agricultural land, causing great economic loss by removing fertile soil. The Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) predicts the long term average annual rate of erosion on a field slope based on rainfall pattern, soil type, topography, crop system and management practices but does not however predict the soil loss resulting from gully erosion.
Key words: soil erosion, Universal Soil Loss Equation, Reghin Hills.
